Guru Gobind Singh Ji was about to mount his horse, he suddenly asked the Khalsa that was standing around to recite Guru Granth Sahib Ji in the time it took him to get on the horse. IMPOSSIBLE! thought the sangat, except for one Singh who did as Guru Sahib ordered, he got as far as saying 'Ik Oankar Sat.. , Guru Gobind Singh Ji sat on his horse and finished off by saying 'Gurprasad'. Guru Sahib explained the whole fundamental message of Guru Granth Sahib Ji is : There is One God - realised by the Grace of the True Guru.
Dont get mislead by anyone who says they are Guru Nanak Sahib Ji, nor by anyone who claims to be a living human SatGuru, nor anyone who says for 20GBP they'll tell you your future from some cards. Believe in True Guru Granth Sahib Ji and no one else. Say to Guru Granth Sahib Ji, ' You are my master, highest, unparralled and most gracious, you look after all that sing Gods praises and all those that listen to Gods praises, save me as well Baba Ji'. Guru Granth Sahib Ji is 'Jag dee Jot' the Light of the World. Believe this whole heartedly without doubt, Guru Gobind Singh Ji says 'Sabh Sikhan ko Hukam ha, Guru Mani-o Granth' 'It is the order to all Sikhs to believe their Guru is the Granth '.
There's a Sakhi about belief: Bhai Bala Ji asked Guru Angad Sahib Ji how come he became the second Guru after doing only a few years of seva, whereas Bhai Bala Ji had dedicated most of his life to guru Nanak Ji? Guru Angad Sahib Ji said to him, 'Bhai Bala Ji what did you see Guru Nanak Ji as?', Bhai Bala Ji said 'He was a perfect Sant in this world'. Guru Anagad Dev Ji said, 'And you too have become a perfect Sant in this world'. Bhai Bala asked Guru Angad Sahib Ji what he saw, Guru Angad Sahib Ji said,' I saw Waheguru Ji himself in Guru Nanak Ji and I was made Guru'.
In the same way, treat Guru Granth Sahib Ji as the embodoiment of Waheguru Jis light - perfect and pure in every way, believe in no other man or photo then your love will take you to the Supreme light where you are destined to merge in anand and happiness.
If one believes Guru Granth Sahib Ji is merely ink and paper, but a man is necessary to bow to and worship then that person is destined to be second best like Bhai Bala Ji.
ik onkar satgurprasad,
ik onkar satgurprasad,
- keep singing this until you truly understand it.
